Ariana Grande Shares Empowering Feminist Message On Twitter

Ariana Grande just dropped some wise feminist truths.

The 21-year-old musician took to Twitter on Sunday to share her thoughts on the double standards and misogyny women face in today's society.

"Being 'empowered' is not the same as being a 'bitch,'" the 21-year-old musician writes, adding, "i am tired of living in a world where women are mostly referred to as a man's past, present or future PROPERTY/POSSESSION."

Grande opened up in Saturday's episode of her behind-the-scenes show "Honeymoon Diaries" about the media's constant questioning about the men in her life, according to Idolator, which posted the above video. The clip does not currently appear on YouTube, but a different video posted to show's channel on Saturday has a caption reading: "yaaaassss sweeeeden (working on getting the other vid unblocked babes)."

“Because I’m not Big Sean’s ex. I’m not Niall [Horan]’s ‘possible new girl,'" Grande says in the video. "I’m Ariana Grande -- and if that’s not interesting enough, don’t talk to me.”

In her Twitter post, Grande expounded on the idea.

"I can't wait to live in a world where people are not valued by who they're dating/married to/attached to, having sex with (or not)/seen with," she writes, "but by their value as an individual."
